Just for fun

My son Matthew has started watching A Nightmare Before Christmas again. Every afternoon after school we have it on (and I mean EVERY afternoon). I must admit, I love watching it too. Hence the idea to create a card featuring Jack and Sally. I scoured the internet and found these images to colour. Grabbed my pair of Jack and Sally earrings (to make sure I got the colours on Sally's dress as close as possible to what they are) and this is what I came up with. Very different to what I usually do but it was so much fun. Anyone who know's me, knows that I love things that are dark... I'm so looking forward to the new Burtonesque Dolls blog starting up. This blog is for all Tim Burton fans, and I can tell you, I'm a huge one (fan that is) lol...

Don't forget to head on over to the Mad for Markers Blog and enter our challenge. Sammi has the most amazing prize for our winner.

How incredible is this? The winner will receive a pack of 10 sheets of copic X-press it blending card AND a box of 36 copic ciao markers. Amazing, I know! All you have to do is colour an image, any image and use the following colours E00, R20 and BG15. If you don't have these exact colours, anything close will be fine.

Have a fantastic day. xo Jackie
